About apartments

About apartments

The apartments are under general repairs. Front windows were enlarged to the so-called "french windows". The low, wide sill is a wonderful place to sit for morning coffee with a book or newspaper - especially since the southern exposure provides sunlight for almost a whole day. You can look for the roofs of the old city. In good weather sometimes even polish mountains - Tatry...
